Crosstalk August 14, 2013
Today's Crosstalk question is whether urban sprawl is becoming a problem in Nfld and Labrador. It's an issue the St. John's Board of Trade is raising in advance of this September's municipal elections. The Board is calling on the city of St. John's to think about building up instead of out. Partly to save money on infrastructure costs such as roads. But also to create neighbourhoods where people can walk to work or to pick up a carton of milk. Denis Mahoney chairs the St. John's Board of Trade. He's in studio, along with Shannie Duff, the outgoing Deputy Mayor of St. John's.
